DUI Driver On Central Park

Good evening, everyone, it's 7:28pm. What a day. I went to the Chinatown area this afternoon to visit someone who is very ... connected to me, I should say. It was pretty nice outside too. Anyway, my monitoring schedule has changed a little bit. I will be monitoring tomorrow from 6am until like 6:45 or 7, then that's it. After I take care of my business tomorrow morning, I then will be at home for a couple of hours doing other stuff, then I will out of town for a college fair for the rest of the day. With that, here's crime for tonight.

7:28pm - DUI driver. Central Park and Belden. White transport van with a temp plate is speeding south towards Lyndale; the driver has beer in his hand and a child in the back seat who's not buckled in.

8:20pm - Stripping the auto in progress. 1700 N Lawndale. Two males in hoodies stripping tires off a silver 2-door foreign car. Thanks to ProdigalOne for obtaining this call for me while I was napping.

9:47pm - Loud music disturbance. On 2523's Beat.

10:23pm - A 5500 unit has a high speed chase. North and Lamon. Going westbound. There's a car speeding dangerously and ... woah. It's on the sidewalk! People are getting ran over by this car!

10:24pm - They're at Laramie and North Ave. They need ambulances, ASAP. Multiple people are injured. No officers injured but there are citizens hurt. At this point, it's a 10-1. All available units to being asked to go to assist with traffic control, help the hurt citizens, etc.

10:25pm - Multiple units going on this thing. Everyone is still at North and Laramie. The car is stopped there, I believe.

10:27pm - Beat 2510Robert is asking all the units to park on the side of the street so the ambulances can tend to the injured civilians.

10:28pm - Beat car 2523R is getting calls on their PDT.

10:55 to 10:57pm - There was some police/Dispatch chatter regarding the whole 10-1/accident thing. It originated at 4320 W North.

I thought the police weren't supposed to chase cars anymore. Perhaps the police are at fault for this crash?

I heard the whole thing on my police scanner. The cop didn't have time to chase this guy. It was all over in a matter of seconds. Check out Timmy's times. I heard the cop say " I see a Lincoln trying to ram another car".... a couple of seconds later he said "wow, this car is flying, he's all the way by Laramie already". That's when the guy must of lost control because the cop then said "send me a few ambulances, the driver of the Lincoln is D.O.A and others are hurt".

Not that I know of, anonymous 11:30.

bobbo, where have you heard that from? The CPD is still allowed to pursue cars to my knowledge. And, how are they at at fault? This crazy SOB drove up on the sidewalk.

Anonymous 8:23, thank you for that info on what you heard. I couldn't make out what was being said for the first minute or so. All I heard was the car driving up onto the sidewalk and hitting people, then all of those people getting seriously injured.
